Happy Free Comic Book Day!

At comic book stores all around the country, today is Free Comic Book Day. Among the day's offerings is a sampler comic from Ape Entertainment, Cartoonapalooza #2. Among the stories in this special comic is a new Femme Noir adventure by yours truly and Joe Staton, aided and abetted by our accomplices Mark Stegbauer and Michael Watkins.

So, get out to your local shop today and pick up a copy – and see what else your local comic shop has to offer! Maybe you can buy something, too, and help stimulate the economy! But just in case you can't make it to a store this weekend, or your shop doesn't happen to be stocking the Ape special, here's a FCBD offering from me to all of you: the 2009 Femme Noir story, "Demon Bat," for your enjoyment (click on the images for a larger view).

And don't forget – the Femme Noir: Dark City Diaries trade paperback will be on sale later this month!

oh, gotta stop by my comic store this evening.

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you and Joe Staton for Femme Noir. I love the series and I've followed it online for several years. I've purchased every print incarnation I've been able to find and I look forward to the trade edition in a few weeks. I've got my local store alerted.

The FBCD story was a hoot. As it happens I've been on a Bela blitz lately and just bought and saw again The Devil Bat so this story had a wonderful resonance for me. That's one wacky movie, but with Bela it's all good.

Keep up the good work. I'll keep spreading the word about Femme Noir where and when I can.

Thanks, Rip. Your support is greatly appreciated.

I've wanted to pay homage to "The Devil Bat" in FEMME NOIR for a while, but thought that doing s full-length story would be too much. Glad you enjoyed our tip of the fedora to the Lugosi Poverty Row classic... it's one of my favorites, obviously.

I wasn't able to locate a hard copy of this, so thanks for posting it.

Thanks for the freebie, C. I never get over to the comic shop for those free comics, but usually a friend picks me up one or two.
